Nonsensical News of the Day, Courtesy of AFP

In an article on reported U.S.-American sabotage efforts directed against Iran's nuclear weapons program, the AFP today identifies Israel's reported nuclear weapons program as the Middle East's "sole" nuclear weapons program. Come again? That's right, the article begins:

US and Israeli intelligence services collaborated to develop a destructive computer worm to sabotage Iran's efforts to make a nuclear bomb, The New York Times reported Saturday.

So far, so good. The third paragraph, though, leaves us scratching our heads in puzzlement:

The testing took place at the heavily guarded Dimona complex in the Negev desert housing the Middle East's sole, albeit undeclared nuclear weapons program.
